In brief: Workup and treatment
There is a condition called thrush which may result in a coated flaky white surface of the tongue.
This is caused by a fungus and is treatable. Patients though who experience recurrent or difficult to treat fungal infections should consult their physicians regarding additional testing including a CD4, CD8 count, and total white cell count and differential.
